      こんばんは。合歓の木の花はこの暑さで萎れているのも多かったです。御蔭で虫に沢山刺されました。
       そのうちに涼しくなるのを願っています。

  12. こんにちは。茨城フラワーパークまで行かれたとは頑張りましたね。ここの開花情報をネットで見て、何回か行こうと検討したのですが、常磐線石岡駅からバス30分というのが、あまりに遠いので、未だに実現していません。アクセスはやはり車ですか。写真ではヤブカンゾウと合歓の木の花が素敵です。あと赤トンボもベストタイミングでしたね。それと茨城県というと筑波山、やはりきれいな山ですね。

       こんばんは。今回は日帰りのバスツアーでした。ヤマユリは自生していたものです。ヤブカンゾウは色々な所に群生していました。
       合歓の木は綺麗に咲いているのも有りましたが、木の上のほうで咲くのでなかなか良い咲き具合の花が見つからず苦労しました。
       筑波山も霞んでいましたが、頑張って撮ってみました。

Such a pretty little puff of pink! And the dragonfly is a real beauty. So glad you go to these places and take your camera (and talent) with you!! :-)

      Thank you very much for your comment. We went to this garden to see the lilies. We were very lucky that we could see full bloom lilies there.
      We enjoyed there very much. Thanks for sharing.
